Academic interests

My academic interests are botany, mycology, systematics, taxonomy and evolutionary biology. In my project I work with phylogeny and species delimitation in the genera Drimiopsis, Ledebouria and Resnova (Asparagaceae, Scilloidea), all three with centre of species diversity in South-eastern Africa. 

Background

I have a bachelor in biology and a master in biodiversity and systematics, both from the University of Oslo. I wrote my master in the field of fungal systematics, with the thesis being titled: "The Helvella corium species complex: Phylogeny, species delimitation and distribution in the Nordic countries".

Partners

I am part of the NORPART project “Collaborative learning in biodiversity, excellence in education through two-way North-South mobility”.
